I was transported to Paris then to a little island off Cannes as I read this story, a lovely afternoon's relaxation. Genevieve and Paul meet again at the Hotel Paradise after 12 years and she relives her past affair with the man she thought was the love of her life. The descriptions are so sensual, intense and immediate that the reader absorbs the Mediterranean ambience, filled with joy, passion, drama and grief. You can almost see and smell the dusty rooms, the herbs in the garden, the sea crashing on the rocks, the vivid sunshine ... Lovely book with a satisfying depth to the final message.

Beginning and concluding in the present day, most of the story in Hotel Paradise occurs twelve years earlier when a young couple, who met by chance in Paris, make their way south to an island off the Cannes coast following an unknown path of adventure.

Genevieve and Paul find themselves in a long forgotten, dusty hotel that might just be ready to awaken to their touches. There is passion, a sense of adventure, hurt, grief and many other emotions, and the spell of the place fills their heads with dreams and ideas for the future. Then a newcomer arrives on the island, but will this upset the balance and with it their dreams?

Throughout the book there is no doubt about the location, Carol’s beloved Mediterranean coast. She describes the food, the markets, the flora, the wildlife, the coastline, the weather, the sounds and the scents. I feel I know the shores of this island despite never having visited it. I think it’s familiarity comes from the pages of one of the Olive Farm books and Carol’s descriptions make me feel I am returning to somewhere special. It has made me want to delve back into her earlier books (again).

This is a neat, perfect example of a short story. A quick morning read on a beach or by the fire – actually, it doesn’t matter where you are, just sit back and let Carol take you to the Mediterranean.

From Paris to the shores of the Mediterranean, this latest from Carol Drinkwater will not disappoint; it is, if anything, even better than her previous bestselling Kindle book "The Girl in Room Fourteen".
Treat yourself, you won't be sorry you did.

This is beautifully written. It almost transports the reader to France... You can almost feel you are there - her descriptions and narrative are that good. The storyline itself is good, with a lovely connection to the characters.

This is a great story to read on holiday or when you have an afternoon to spare. It has a real feel good factor about it and is a good read to escape from real life for a bit.

Would recommend.

As someone who fell in love many years ago with the Iles des Lerins, just off Cannes, this novelette had a special resonance. I remember long, peaceful sunny days spent in the many secluded coves of the main island, a million miles away from the stress of my then job. Carol Drinkwater writes beautiful descriptive prose, and the tale of the two ypung lovers, yet semi-strangers, gradually transforming the fortunes of the decrepit hotel is the sort of thing best enjoyed in one sitting.
Well done, "Mrs Herriott" !

I thoroughly enjoyed Hotel Paradise, an easy read. it transported you to the sunny Mediterranean on these grey cloudy days of an English spring. Although it had a death and heartbreak it also had a happy ending and I love a happy ending.
Highly recommended

Having read several of Carol Drinkwater's 'Olives' series I was pleased to see her writing again about her beloved France, this time a piece of fiction. I warmed to the characters and the descriptions of both Paris and the south of France are evocative. I kept wondering where things would go wrong in Paradise, but of course they did. The ending leaves room for a sequel which I would love to read.

A very intriguing story. Carol Drinkwater has a very descriptive writing style which makes an enjoyable read. I was quite disappointed when the story came to an end, I was expecting it to be a considerable length as it had the potential to extend. Nevertheless I would recommend it to others.
